2005 Lincoln LS V6 Ash Tray stays open, wont close


Pop out the ashtray. Remove the ashtray assembly (the housing). if you flip the ashtray over and look at the bottom you can see a small spot where a piece of plastic has broken off (this should be obvious). In the ashtray housing there is the latch mechanism with the broken "nipple" probably stuck inside of the mechanism. Get the plastic piece out and discard it. Reinstall the housing only.

Now, get a TINY ( I mean really small, like 4mm long and maybe 1/4-1/2mm diameter) screw handy. Drill a slightly smaller hole right through the ashtray where the piece of plastic was before it broke off. screw in the screw from the TOP of the ashtray so it only pokes out of the bottom 1.5 MMor so. Put the ashtray in. If it still doesn't "catch" screw the screw in a little further so it sticks out the bottom a little more. If it binds you've ******* the screw in too far so back it off. You get the drift.

This takes about 30 minutes. It's hard to explain but once you look at the bottom of the ashtray you'll understand the concept. Hope this helps somebody out there.

Ashtray won't stay closed. how to remove ashtray assembly


The trim panel around the radio / HVAC controls needs to be removed to get to the screws.

To remove the trim panel, open the ash tray and pull on each lower corner. There are 3 spring clips on each side holding the trim in place. The 1st time you do this, they are a bit hard to pull out.

The black circles in this picture are where the spring clips are

If you can just hang the panel to the side or have someone hold it, you can get to the 2 screws on the top of the ashtray assembly ( there are just above the black sides of the ash tray in the picture above ). The ash tray is pulled out and down, it is farther in the dash than it looks. Once out, you can take a look at the springs on the side / back that hold it in, to see if they broke off or fell off.

How do i change the ashtray light?


Remove the ashtray and look for the screws that attach the ashtray bracket to the dash. Remove the ashtray bracket. The light fixture has a metal clip that you can squeeze to release the fixture from the ashtray bracket. (Sometimes it is easier to pry or push the clip gently sideways with a small screwdriver.) Replace the bulb and re-assemble.

I cannot locate the flasher unit in my 1987 chevy celebrity. Help!


Both four way and directional flasher are usually on the fuse block. Sometimes the directional flasher is separate and up under the edge of the dash. To locate the 4way, turn it on and find the item thats clicking. The directional flasher looks identical but won't be clicking.

Electrical


I think those are both on the same fuse; which is likely blown. Your fuses are behind the ashtray in the center console. There is a guide on the back of the ashtray assembly to which fuses are for what and the correct amperage. Replace ONLY with the SAME amperage.

Where is the turn signal flasher?


There are 2 flashers. I read many different tips, but finally found my turn signal flasher right on top of the ash tray assembly. Take out ashtray. Remove 4 small hex head screws to remove the assembly that the ashtray slides in to. I found the turn signal flasher in a clip on the top side of that assembly
